A printer is an image formation device which receives data from a host computer and then forms a corresponding image onto a recordable medium such as a sheet of paper. Various kinds of printers such as dot impact printers, inkjet printers, laser printers, thermoelectric printers, dye sublimation printers, serial printers, line printers, chain printers, bar printers, wheel printers and matrix printers have been developed. Generally, in a dot impact printer, a thermal printer, a thermal transfer printer, an ink jet printer and other various types of printers, print data are converted to pattern data such as characters, diagrams and others and, then, the pattern data are developed on an image buffer to print out characters. An inkjet printer prints an image on a paper while a print head moves across an advancing direction of the paper, ejecting ink through nozzles. A laser printer generates images by fusing toner to a printing surface using a laser. Laser printer generally produce images of a higher quality than ink-jet printers and they operate faster. A dye sublimation printer employs a printing process that uses heat to transfer dye to a medium such as a plastic card, printer paper or poster paper. A thermal printer uses a thermal printhead and specially treated paper to create an image. Thermal printers are widely used in calculators and fax machines. A dot matrix printer forms characters or images using a matrix of pins that strike an inked ribbon.
